Announcement. Ulefone Armor 8 Pro - an inexpensive armored smartphone with NFC

The model is not yet visible on the official website, but it has already appeared in the corporate online store on AliExpress.

In fact, Ulefone Armor 8 Pro is a light upgrade of last year's Ulefone Armor 8. We added memory, and replaced Android with a more recent one, the eleventh. Everything. No other differences are visible.

Protection. Traditionally, it is said about protection against dust and moisture according to IP68 and IP69K standards. I believe in the first. So, perhaps, you can wash your smartphone under the tap.

Also promised shockproof and fita series of tests of the MIL-STD-810G standard (low pressure, solar radiation, humidity). If you plan to drop (even from the permitted height of 120 cm), do so carefully. The glass is still shattering.

As a smartphone, the Ulefone Armor 8 Pro is quite modest. Although now the memory is in complete order. 6 GB of operational, 128 GB of constant. And the battery is excellent - 5580 mAh (15W charging, moderately fast).

But the chipset remained modest as it was. MediaTek Helio P60 three years ago, around 160 thousand AnTuTu points. If this is the middle class, then it is already the very edge of it.

The screen is small by modern standards, only 6.1 ″. The resolution is not high, 720 × 1560, but for such a diagonal it gives quite tolerable 282 ppi.

Nothing special can be expected from the cameras. Front camera with a resolution of 8 MP. The rear camera is triple, 16 + 5 + 2 MP (main module, macro, depth sensor).

There is an NFC module, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi. Even a gyroscope is promised. The fingerprint scanner is located on the side.

How much the smartphone will cost is not yet clear. On AliExpress, there are $ 249.99 (₽19,400) crossed out and the price is suggested to be guessed.

The predecessor Ulefone Armor 8 now costs $ 169.99 (₽13,200) on AliExpress. So we are expecting a price in the region of two hundred dollars, probably.
